Fraud rental descriptions used: Showcased on a glorious trophy point property, this sophisticated custom-built traditional residence offers the ultimate South Florida lifestyle.

Among the magnificent deepwater estates of Coral Ridge Country Club, the more rarely available Intracoastal point properties hold special appeal with their dramatic expanses of shoreline, opening panoramic viewpoints while berthing yachts on the sheltered side canal. One such point property, a spectacular trophy estate, provides the setting for this inspired classic, custom built in 2006, designed with a stylish take on tradition.

Presiding over 247+/- feet of southeast-facing shoreline, this Mediterranean jewel is beautifully sited to showcase both its elegant presence and wide-reaching Intracoastal vistas, all the more breathtaking when the passing parade of yachts is on display. Equally as stunning as the setting, the sophisticated living environment achieves the perfect balance of richness and understated refinement. Each aspect is brilliantly thought out, from the versatile floor-plan to the fine details and from the principal living/entertaining rooms to the more utilitarian spaces. Abundant French doors promote an open flow to extensive outdoor living spaces creating a wonderful blend of shaded and sun-splashed settings around the pool. Private yacht dockage with unobstructed ocean access culminates this exquisite Fort Lauderdale point paradise.

Location

Fort Lauderdale, Florida. One of Fort Lauderdale’s finest private-membership communities, Coral Ridge Country Club offers gracious living centered on an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. The Clubhouse is accompanied by an Olympic-size pool and 11-court tennis facility. In the heart of Fort Lauderdale, Coral Ridge is minutes from the beach and world-class shopping and dining.

Property

This prized southeast point lot fronts 140+/- feet directly on the Intracoastal plus another 107+/- feet on the side canal, featuring a specially engineered seawall and full-service dock with boat lift. Optimizing the stellar southeast viewpoint, the breezy outdoor entertainment area hosts large-scale social gatherings on multiple loggia/gazebo areas, served by a summer kitchen and cabana bath, centered on the sleek pool with “beach” area.

Residence

Traditional design is artfully refined in this impeccable residence comprising a total of 9,170+/- square feet with 6 bedrooms, 6? baths, elevator, back-up generator, 4-zone air-conditioning, and 3-bay garage. Myriad features include the authentic hand-made clay barrel tile roof, classic millwork, oil-based paints, beautiful marble and antiqued tile finishes, high ceilings on both levels, and Toto bath fixtures.

First Floor: Inside the welcoming entry, the impressive 2-story foyer is set off by striking banded marble flooring and a handsome wainscoted cherry staircase. Waterfront views open through the Doric-columned passageway into the living room with hardwood floor, recessed ceiling, elegant gas fireplace, and transomed French doors to the pool patio. Appointed with a recessed ceiling and chair rail, the formal dining room adjoins a butler’s pantry with wine cooler, adjacent to the powder room. A waterside breakfast bay opens off the epicurean’s kitchen creating a beautiful composition with contrasting cabinet finishes, Carrara marble counters, tiled backsplashes, and ashlar-patterned stone flooring. High-end appliances include the Thermador 6-burner gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, and 2 Miele dishwashers. The inviting family room is lined with French doors along the poolside loggia. Off the rear stair hall is a laundry room/office plus a staff bedroom/playroom adjoining the full cabana bath. Across the foyer, a side hall leads to a guest/staff suite and a den with French doors to another waterside loggia.

Second Floor: Entered through a private octagonal foyer, the spacious waterfront master suite is warmly elegant and serenely restful. The large bedroom is appointed with hardwood flooring, a tray ceiling, and French doors to romantic loggia with panoramic waterway vistas. Two customized walk-in closets accompany the luxurious his-and-her bath with jetted tub and rain-head shower. Three more bedrooms, 2 with sun terraces, all feature waterfront vistas, walk-in closets, and en-suite baths finished in beadboard and subway tile. A study/playroom/media room and a laundry/exercise room complete this level.
